Derek Anderson - John Skelton - Max Hall - Rich Bartel - Kevin Kolb - Ryan Lindley - Bryan Hoyer
Certainly not an elite list of passers by any means, but you'd think one of the would have stuck by default.
|Palmer is now "The Guy" in Arizona (Arizona Cardinals - Associated Press)|
Today's game in St. Louis ended up as a 27-24 loss for the Red Sea, but in a way to find a "moral" victory, we saw Palmer go 26/40 with 327 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. When was the last time an Arizona QB threw for more than 300 yards? Well, it was actually last season when Ryan Lindley threw for 312 against STL, but also threw 4 interceptions in that game as well.
Although today's performance seemed much different. Palmer seemed to have confidence. Something that the fans aren't used to see from their QB. Sure a couple miscues and a few missed routes would lead to their demise, but there was a sense of relief amongst the fan base. They finally have a quarterback.
1.) Andre Roberts - Was all over the place today and showed why he will make this receiving corp a deadly threat.
2.) Dan Williams - A tipped pass and a stroke of "right place, right time" lead to his first career interception and first career touchdown.
3.) Tyrann Mathieu - Honey Badger made his presence felt in the defense, including an epic forced fumble.
1.) Levi Brown - I'm surprised Brown wasn't dizzy after being turned around by Robert Quinn numerous times.
2.) Cortland Finnegan - Wouldn't be surprised to see him get a fine for a couple unnecessary roughness penalties.
